guest: the koppers have a long history here in the u.s. and they can be in different forms. they can be owned by the members themselves and they use their strength as a group to purchase goods or services and the cooperatives of that would be formed across the united states would act in the very same way as they do today. i informed rural illinois and we are very familiar with cooperatives as individuals come together as groups. americans think of themselves as the rugged individualists, but actually, we join groups all the time. and the cooperatives give the power of groups to the individual. i think that it can bring competition to the health care sector. we need greater competition. but we need greater choices for individuals. and that is what i think cooperative's done correctly will do. a cartel, on the other hand, is controlled by the suppliers and their monopolistic -- and they are monopolistic and they do not serve to enhance competition. cartels killed competition. we ought to be careful about the real language that is being used. kecoughtahost: it sounds like ot c

for a road map, they might find it in massachusetts. jim acosta is joining us in boston this morning. looking today at massachusetts health care system. this was implemented in former governor mitt romney. >> that's right. of all thing, a republican. and you know, john, earlier this week, the white house took a lot of heat from democrats when it backed away from public option and the plans for health care reform. what do you get when you take the public option out of health care reform, according to some experts, you get romney care. >> reporter: if washington wants to reform health care with bipartisan support, consider what former republican presidential candidate mitt romney did as governor in democratic massachusetts. >> you don't have to have a public option. you don't have to have the government in the insurance business to make it work. >> three years after enacting its own version of reform, massachusetts now has near universal coverage. taxpayer watchdogs say it's affordable. >> the wide spread assumption that is breaking the bank in massachusetts. it's not breaking the bank at all.

there. we'll take your calls. 877-tell-hln. joining us to talk about it, former u.s. attorney and also a representative from search. you are showing the foliage and it wouldn't be easy to find caylee, correct? go ahead, tim. >> i think it was next to impossible. there certainly was standing water that was covering anything and that's why i made the decisions that i made before that if caylee was deceased it would be a tiny skeleton over there and we wouldn't take a chance on a horse stepping on it or even a ground searcher and i still think it was the greatest decision and wisest decisions i made in any searches because if that would have happened it would have pushed that body down in the mud and destroyed anything and it would still never be found. we searched everything. one of the big reasons the photo was taken before we did that search is we flew over every area we searched before and any area we had any interest in. that was an area we had a lot of interest in and law enforcement had a lot of interest in so we could compare those areas with what they looked like then compared to
these days. what is happening? . u.s. steel workers union in a conference call. he claimed that pittsburgh has snagged these big events because of its excellent record in labor and business relations, public/private partnerships -- they went back over the whole they went back over the whole story of our renaissance that 1950's and said it has all led up to today. frankly, there are probably other reasons why we got picked to be the site of the g-20 summit. i still have not figured the not yet, but i am assuming that we are attractive because we are perceived as a green city. we have a convention center which i believe was the first leed-certified convention center in the world. many buildings around town have been greened in that regard, so they are impressed by those efforts by arrest belt city to raise its environmental profile. also, i think barack obama has some pretty fond memories of pittsburgh. in the pennsylvania primary he spent a lot of time here last spring in the state and came to the city a few times. and also we do have a fairly strong labor presence here. i'm just speculatin
in through the doors, we saw standing before us president bill clinton. >> boy, can you imagine how they were overcome at that moment? lee and ling were employed by the media company owned by al gore. president obama watched this joyous reunion on television as we all did here. he said he is breathing a sigh of relief now that the women are back home. >> i want to just make a brief comment about the fact that the two young journalists, euna lee and laura ling are safely back with their families. we are obviously extraordinarily relieved. i had an opportunity to speak with the families yesterday once we knew that they were on the plane. the reunion that we have all seen on television, i think is a source of happiness not only for the families, but for the entire country. >>> we want to know what you think about this, does former president clinton's mission, do you believe open the doors to better relations with north korea at this point? give us a call at 1-877-tell-hln or e-mail us at cnn.com/hln. and you can text us your views at hlntv. >>> police say a man killed himself after firing 50 bul

, weigh in, let us know how you feel about this, men versus women, apparently women have a different reaction to cold temperatures than men do. >> finally, scientific proof because we've been having-- >> we were trying to await this study. >> a battle royal at every-- as i do with my work husband every single weekend, the fight about temperature. >> we already had one. >> this morning, it was the worst. >> five minutes ago. >> cold, too hot. >> but first let me be clear, the president likes to say let be me cheer. in fact, it is his favorite phrase, one he's uttered over and over and over again in his first few months on the job, an interesting article on the politico.com, how frequently the president uses this phrase and exactly what it accomplishes, gee guys. >> from excuse me president bush's former speech writer, it's a phrase, a verbal twitch. an example of president obama using the let's be clear linements first of all, let me be clearments let me be clear. >> i just want to be clear. let me be clear. >> so let me be clear. >> i want to be clearments i want to make clear. >> i
't have any public events on his schedule. that worries us. what happens here at the white house, the press conference, something. the president is sitting down with the staff and very quietly going on with all of the options with health care reform. we didn't have the senate supporting the public option. they waned to bring in more republicans, the blue dog democrats, as well as assure people that the insurance companies -- the private insurance companies that believe they're going to go out of business, that public health care reform is'a bad idea. what else circulates. what's out there -- perhaps the idea of a co-op. you see the back and forth. one is de-emphasized, another pops up. this is about give us something, guys. what's going to stick here? hopefully the health care legislation believes he's going to sign to law is'going to look the way it looks today, yesterday. we're trying to get a balance, if you will, to see what is the formula to get the most support. >> interesting to see what else percolates out there. a little later at 7:10, speak with congressman weiner we sa
could think of that is that crazy has already been actually used by these people. there are these crazy conspiracy theories about health care reform on the one hand. and on the other hand there are these organized efforts to shut down political debate about health care by using angry crowds to take over town hall meetings and chase congressmen through parking lots. these two observable facts about the antihealth care reform forces, it turns out, are really one big thing. do yourself a favor if you have a moment and you're online and go to the website recess rally.com. it's a very nice website. very slick. got a big stop sign right there in the middle above the list of all the town hall rallies they expect you to go to and disrupt. the tag line up there you can see is we the people say no to socialized health care. we the people. that's how the republican party has been describing these town hall takeovers, too. putting out a statement today saying democrats should stop being so upset about them. quote, what democrats call mob rule, the average american calls democracy. these kinds of de
